After putting together back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2019 and 2020, Darren Waller has missed 14 games due to injury over the last two years. In 2021, a knee injury forced Waller to miss five late-season games. In 2022, a hamstring injury wiped out nearly half of his season. Now with the Giants, Waller could see a lot of targets for a team short on talent and size at the WR position. Waller has been reasonably productive when healthy the last two seasons, but he now has to be considered at least a mild health risk, and the big tight end will turn 31 in September.

Fantasy Impact

Waller is being acquired by the Giants to add to the weapons for QB Daniel Jones following his big contract. Waller is still under contract for the next four seasons for roughly $11 million a year. In return, the Raiders are receiving pick No. 100 in the 2023 NFL Draft, a pick the Giants acquired by trading away WR Kadarius Toney to the Kansas City Chiefs. Waller has been a starting TE in fantasy whenever healthy the last few seasons.
